Default Purge question

When I purge my new Syrian, after the end of the purge, i feel a bit of air coming back thru the hose.
Is there something wrong with my purge valve, or is it the way it should?
it's the first time i have a non-chinese so i don't know what to expect...

air coming back into the hose is usually a sign that your purging too hard....you might have too much water in your base also, be careful cause if its just air you are ok, but if water comes up the hose that would be bad

Happens to me every now and then, sounds like the purge ball gets stuck on the edge of the port. Shouldn't really be a big deal.

That's what I was thinking, too. If you still have a chinese hookah, you might be able to scavenge the purge cap and ball bearing and use them. They're larger than most syrian rigs and, as often as not, use the same threads, so they fit. I have four syrian hookahs (two Nour and two Al Narwas) and I converted all the purge valves like that. They work MUCH better.

Also what is probably happening is that the buildup of pressure in the chamber of the hookah is pushing water up the center pipe. The air coming back out is probably that water that was forced up the pipe succumbing to gravity forcing air through the hose and the purge. Just my guess.

i am not quite sure what the purge is all about, what is the purpose, and when/how often is it done? (waiting on my first hookah, only smoked others)

I don't even have a purge valve as far as I know. It sucks when I burn the Shisha.
